AmpliTube X-GEAR For More IK Users


IK Multimedia has announced that AmpliTube X-GEAR has been made available as a free download for all AmpliTube 2 Live users and StealthPlug users.
Here’s what they have to say about it… AmpliTube X-GEAR is the first completely expandable guitar amp and effects modeling software system, available as a plug-in and standalone version for Mac/PC, that allows mixing and matching between all the gear models from all current and future “Powered by AmpliTube� products in a single host interface; providing seamless control over every parameter directly from IK’s StompIO revolutionary USB floor controller and audio interface. X-GEAR gives users the ability to build the ultimate mega-rig of truly custom guitar and bass tones, live and in the studio.
By integrating AmpliTube 2 Live into X-GEAR, users will get instant access to major new features like:
  • 5 modules including: Tuner, Stomp, Amp, Cabinet and Rack effects (instead of 2 modules)
  • Double rig with 8 series/parallel configurations (instead of the single fixed rig)
  • 1 new Amp and Cabinet (bringing the number of available Amps and Cabinets to 4)
  • Custom amp building (thanks to separate Amp Pre, EQ and Power Section now available) now offering up to 192 different amp combinations
  • More controls like Ambience in the cabinet module and advanced Automation
  • Possibility to integrate AmpliTube 2 Live with other “powered by AmpliTubeâ€� software applications, including AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, Ampeg® SVX and AmpliTube Metal into a single interface with full mixing and matching between the included gear models
  • Seamless integration with StompIO advanced USB floor controller and audio interface for using your computer live like the most powerful multi-FX system ever made
AmpliTube 2 Live Users may access all of these new features by downloading and install/authorizing AmpliTube X-GEAR from their IK user area.
X-GEAR will automatically recognize their previous AmpliTube 2 Live installation, as well as any other “Powered by AmpliTube� software that has been installed on their computer, giving immediate access to all of the gear models and new features within the new interface.
Pricing and Availability:
AmpliTube 2 Live is available as a software-only download in the IK online shop for only €74.99/$99.99 (exc. taxes) and it is also included in the StealthPlug audio cable interface for €99.99/$129.99 (exc. taxes) from the IK web store and through IK’s worldwide network of distributors and dealers.
